Foodcrisis?



As we all know, the demonstrations begin when the food prices in that region went up. Well not only in that region, in fact in the whole world the prices went up. The rises do not only have to do with bad crop or bad monetary policy. But also with us living greener and using food to drive "green", of course this will pressure the food prices, as the demand gows with our needs.

I found a useful website, where they state whit the top 25 countries who are in danger.

The question now is, will this lead to regime overthrows in other countries?

  3. Its a sad fact of the world where in the Americas we are so wasteful, but other countries would KILL for a meal like we eat on a regular basis.

    It is too bad there is no real good solution for this problem either.

  4. Check out Rolling Stone's article on Ethanol being (quote) "Dangerous, delusional bullshit." Very related to this and this blog.

  5. Interesting, even though a "renewable" fuel is considered good, it has major ramifications in other areas.

  11. using food to "drive green" is just fooling yourselves, moving the Co2 emissions elsewhere.

  18. Spikes often stabilize. Food prices will be higher in the future, yes, but not as bad as people will think.

  26. Good tip, but the way I win employers over is with my cover letter. My resume pretty much speaks for itself, since I was managing a cell phone store at the age of 18... they don't need to know i just sat around drinking though.
